Shelly Talcott is Lutheran World Relief’s Senior Director of Constituent Engagement. Shelly provides hands-on opportunities for U.S. Lutherans to get involved in the work of LWR and to live out their faith. She also oversees donor services, whose goal it is to process, receipt and thank donors for their generosity.

A graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College, Shelly is particularly passionate about providing women and girls access to resources and opportunities to have a voice and serves as the Vice President of the Board for Girls on the Run Twin Cities.

Shelly is the perfect candidate to speak about how U.S. Lutherans can engage with LWR individually or with their congregations. She is equipped to speak to congregations of all sizes in all age groups.

[I love] the commitment of the LWR staff, the positive, efficient environment and the knowledge that I get to work with passionate, dedicated US Lutherans who give so much of their time, resources and skills to make a difference for communities facing poverty and marginalization.
